WOYWW #189

Well well well; can it be that it is Wednesday ALREADY?  I'm tempted to not believe you but you've never tried to pull the wool over my eyes before so I guess it must be true...... Time to fling open the door to my workplace and shed a little light on the chaos that is my creative world. All because Julia from Stamping Ground decided 189 weeks ago it might be fun to share a desk or two with the world. Go HERE to find out more.....

This is my little corner this week.

 I generally have good intentions of clearing away after I finish something but to be frank, I usually work until I have to go to work and think "I'll sort it later" Anyway, that's why my desk looks like there's stuff piled on stuff.......there is!
 There's this slowly evolving journal page; started with an idea but not sure where it will end up yet though.
 Then, my storage solution for my Distress Stains, you'll have seen it in progress last week, it's done now and I love it!
 Here it is closed again.
Then, this is heavy so it's holding something down while the glue dries so I don't have to press down for an hour waiting for it to set properly! Still want to do something with this clock, just not made the time yet.

So there you have it, my little creativity table this week.

Love the box for the distress inks! All my storage boxes need to be plain with no embellishment on the top, so that I can pile them all one on top of the other. Sad, isn't it?
RosA - too early for numbers yet.

Now that's a great idea to put colours on top of the distress stains, it would save us having to get out every single one before we find the colour we want. Love your journal page so far.

From the bears with no idea what number we are as we forgot to check! :)

Kate said...

The Distress Stains look great in that box and room for plenty more!!

The ink storage box looks fabulous and I love the 60's feel of the journal page (showing my age as it was nearly my era)and I had one of those ships clocks many years ago, they would indeed make a good paperweight!! Annette #3

Julia Dunnit said...

oh its a little joke, wnting to do something with a clock but not having time....except it's not, I know! I love the look of your desk, I think it only fair that you should work at it till you need to leave for work. makes a lot of sense to me, after all, you're going to pick up where you left off, huh! Very striking journal page.

Nan G said...
